Intriguing Summary

A wondrous, tender novel about a young girl grappling with her role in a tragic loss—and attempting to reshape the narrative of her life—from PEN/Faulkner Award nominee Claire OshetskyMargaret Murphy is a weaver of fantastic tales, growing up in a world where the truth is too much for one little girl to endure. Her first memory is of the day her friend Agnes died.No one blames Margaret. Not in so many words. Her mother insists to everyone who will listen that her daughter never even left the house that day. Left alone to make sense of tragedy, Margaret wills herself to forget these unbearable memories, replacing them with imagined stories full of faith and magic—that always end happily.Enter Poor Deer: a strange and formidable creature who winds her way uninvited into Margaret’s made-up tales. Poor Deer will not rest until Margaret faces the truth about her past and atones for her role in Agnes’s death.Heartrending, hopeful, and boldly imagined, Poor Deer explores the journey toward understanding the children we once were and the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of life’s most difficult moments.

About the Author

“Listen! I will be honest with you, I do not offer the old smooth prizes…” – Walt Whitman I review books here on goodreads as my fashion-conscious bibliophilic alter ego, “Lark Benobi.” Come follow or friend me on my lark benobi page. if you like. I visit this page so infrequently that I won’t be accepting friend requests here.Now and then I’ll be leaving reviews on goodreads as “Claire Oshetsky” but only for those books that have influenced me as a writer.People keep asking me whether the child in the novel Chouette is meant to represent an autistic child, or a trans child, or an autistic trans child, or some other kind of child. The book is fiction. The child in the novel is an owl. Other people ask me what “Poor Deer,” the titular character in my latest novel, represents. I have no good answer to that question.Other autobiographical stuff to know about me: I love to read. My life goal is to eat and grow fat, same as the three billy goats gruff.
